    Login password required after power saving shut off, why?


    Whilst using netplwiz I have disabled password requirement.
    (disabled Users must enter a username and password to use this computer)
    This works fine at booting, or restarting.
    After a 'power saving-shut off' (probably a sign off?) and reactivating the laptop, I need to enter the password again.

    How to solve that?

    It is a laptop.
    Maybe it has something to do with 'Sleep'?

  4. Login password required after power saving shut off, why?

    Password issue

    After going through the steps to make a new password, after a week or two, my login credentials are no longer valid. I'm forced to make a new password all over again. It seems to happen if I don't login in a certain period of time. Does our passwords expire???
